Abstract:

The psychological effects of CB terrorism derive from two sources the action of the agents on the body and the brain, and the effects and implications of the terrorist act itself on the human psyche. The physical and mental effects of agent exposure are reasonably, but not completely, described in the technical literature. The psychological effects of terrorist acts in general are also reasonably well described, but only limited information is available on the specific impact of CB terrorism.
